releasing heating from the sun. cold front from the north. boston had a high of 79. out ahead of the front mid 90's. front comes through tomorrow. that brings in cooler ocean air. flow develops out of the east to north east and that is why temperatures get income down. to the evening, maybe shower or storm, lehigh valley. that diminishing tomorrow. scattered showers do pop up in the afternoon. good news we do need some rain but not everybody sees a shower. back to saturday we are hoping it is a full sunshine especially through much of the delaware valley, cloud lingering in south jersey and delaware. pennsylvania partly cloudy warm and humid. friday's forecast afternoon scattered storm possible otherwise partly sunny, cooler 86 degrees. labor day forecast full sunshine through weekend on monday. high near 90 for philadelphia lower 80's at the shore and in the poconos the extended forecast, three days of 80's, mid 80's with lower humidity for weekend and sunshine. we are backup to 90 on monday. lower 90's on tuesday and wednesday with some more
we have a half an hour away from the start of the eagles preseason game against the jets. >> leslie van arsdal is live in east rutherford new jersey with the eagles and leslie, this is an important game for a lot of the guys out there tonight. >> it sure is, one more to go, before it counts all of the guys out here on the field, as we speak, and, for many of these players if you see them this is their last chance to prove to chip kelly they deserve to make the cut. i caught up with merrill reese to find out what he is looking for tonight. >> would i like to see bunch of young players vying in their last opportunities to nail down some roster spots, and a quick game, not a lot of
penalties, and no injuries. >> now of course the bolt between tim tebow and matt barclay that has taken center stage here tonight. >> it has and i don't know how much we can read into it. we really don't know what chip kelly is thinking. if you really evaluating it as a quarterback battle, or does he have in his mind that there is a a package, that he is going to use for tim tebow. is this already set? we look at it on the surface and say matt barclay has had the edge in perform as a quarterback, passer during this preseason but if barclay really lights it up, it will help his chances. >> and then you have tim tebow that has that x factor. >> he has that x factor but x plus nothing equals nothing last week in the two-point conversion that is he tried. i'm anxious to see if the eagles score do they try two again and see if tebow can
engineer that two-point conversion. that would help his case. >> so as far as a fourth priest season dos goes, thinks exciting. battle takes center stage we sees one key starter play for the first time kiko alonzo. i know fans are looking forward to seeing him. i'm looking forward to seeing him. so guys for a fourth preseason game this is not a bad one. back to you ukee and jessica. >> can i a say would i love to hear merrill just read the dictionary, anything, read the dictionary. merrill reese my man. dictionary. merrill reese my man. just by switching to progressive. so you'll be bringing home the bacon in no time. sorry. get a free quote at progressive.com. you'd do that for me? really? yeah i'd like that. who are you talking to? uh, it's jake from state farm. sounds like a really good deal. jake from state farm, at three in the morning? who is this? it's jake from state farm.
